    Uninvited Guest

    One of the Guilds I belong to has a Challenge each year.
    I won 3rd Place for this entry.
    The pattern is by Margaret Rolfe and came from her book called "Go Wild with Quilts Again"
    The birds and bear are paper pieced.

    Very cute! Is it the woodpecker or the bear who was uninvited?

    Wonderful job! You could also do the birds as red cardinals, have a green border & make it a Christmas quilt!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
